Uptown Updates

This Sunday at Uptown
New Sermon Series:
Genesis: The True Story of the Whole World
In a world filled with pain, senseless violence, and never-ending reminders of brokenness, all of us are longing for a greater story. Through movies, books, art, and music, our world is crying out for answers to life’s biggest questions: what is my purpose? What is human identity? Is there hope for redemption, and where is it found? God has given us such a story: the true story of the whole world. From the very beginning, this story unpacks the origins of life, the purpose of our existence, the presence of evil, and the promise of restoration. Join us for our new sermon series on Genesis 1-12.
